Day 6 of 31 Days of Hallowe'en

For full deets on this Freaking fangtastic Blog hop organised by Smeared Ink and The Smeared and Smudged forum, please hop on over to Terra's blog. All the info on the days sponsors are there as well as any other info you think you might need.  The blog hop roll is there in my side bar.

Today I have used an image from yet another of the sponsors of this month long extravaganza - Altered Pages. This image can be found on the Halloween Horribles sheet.

A chunky ATC. Well I have some blocks of wood left over from previous projects. I might as well use the materials on hand.
After painting the wood block with bright orange acrylic then with a wash of off-white and wiping off when nearly dry, the decorating can begin.

Stamps by Prickly Pear
The moon was heat embossed with WOW glow-in-the-dark embossing powder 
 The same image just heat embossed. Sorry, my skills as a photographer cannot capture the effect under different lighting conditions.
From the same Prickly Pear stamp set. These are the interchangeable faces that can be added to the plain pumpkin stamp.
The Altered Pages image adhered to the block with loads of seed beads pressed into glossy accents.
The skulls on top secured with silicon glue. The gaps seen at the ends were "tidied up" by pressing little brads into the silicon.

That's Day 6 done. 

Off you hop to the lovely Loren. Thank you for looking and for all your kind comments so far.
